Traitor Tim Switches Camps
It's here... Tim Occhipinti's April 15 ELEC report for his 2015 municipal campaign.
Remember his last one?
OINK OINK... Timmy spent 81% of his 2015 campaign fund on various 2013 charitable engagements (luncheons, dinners, dances), political friends and "staff salaries". GA's fave was how he reimbursed himself for 'Hurricane Sandy Supplies' paid from his 'Personal Account.' ($362.25). You couldn't cough up for hurricane victims, Tim?
Well, it looks like GA's expose on how Timmy's used his campaign cash like a slush fund either shamed him into more modest spending or has driven him underground. Because according to his latest ELEC, Tim's not quite the oinker he was back in January; no one's collecting a "salary," no W Hotel gala tickets, no mysterious Tour Bus rentals.
But... Timmy still hasn't learned to reach into his own pocket for political donations; nope, not when he can reach into yours.
Last time it was Albio Sires ($250) and Brian Stack ($175). This time:
Yup! Jersey City Mayor Healy! Not Fulop, the guy who went to his fundraisers and helped him get... um, 'elected'.
Like his patroness, Beth Mason, Tim has back-stabbed the people who worked for him in his 2010 campaign. GA is told that Timmy (actually) believes he won on his own merit, not because a constellation of machine politicos lined up for him. Which is why he thinks nothing of tossing the Fulop people in the trash; what does he need them for? He's got Beth Mason's money- he's invincible.
Well, that's not what I hear.
